Dare to Bare

Trend:  The Big Reveal

It’s time to reveal all this spring and with lingerie as stunning as that shown by the likes of Christian Dior and Isaac Mizrahi it seems a shame to keep our underwear under wraps!  Delicate detailing and burlesque style corsetry dominated the spring / summer catwalks proving that this season’s key trend should not be confined to the boudoir.

To keep this look more Dita Von Teese than Jodi Marsh go for soft chiffon fabrics and team lace corsetry with a tailored jacket or figure hugging pencil skirt for the ultimate in demure 50’s elegance. If however, the thought of baring all is a little scary, try layering a sheer blouse over a pretty bodice or silk brassiere for a nod to Nina Ricci’s fabulously flirty spring 2010 show.

Gorgeous underwear is also hitting the high street, and with Topshop’s range of coveted lace bodices there’s no excuse to keep covered up this season. So come on girls if you’ve got it flaunt it!
